However, the local-based Observer group on Wednesday said the absence of party agents in polling stations,apart from Jubilee Party’s, as well as absence of observers may have affected the outcome of the election.

LEGITIMACY QUESTION

The Group also noted that the fresh poll may not have been conducted in line with the Supreme Court order which spelt that it should be done in strict adherence to the Constitution and applicable electoral laws.

They claimed some forms used in the election were tampered while others were not signed but remained coy on whether President Uhuru’s re-election is legitimate.

They also observed that voters who failed to vote was because they felt disenfranchised.

POLL PREPARATION

The observers poked holes in electoral agency’s preparations for the fresh poll.

The voter register, they said, is faulty and the IEBC broke the law by failing to publish the list on time.

ELOG however concluded by calling for dialogue as the way forward in addressing the current political impasse.
